Mbanza is a group of talented artists with a passion for AfroBlues and fusion grooves.

Hailing from Boulder, Colorado, this project is the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist Eric SugarSnap Pea. Ever since 2011, he has been performing a unique West-African instrument known as “Kamale N’Goni”, which allowed him to be familiarized with traditional West African rhythms and melodies. He also studied with well-respected teacher Craig Meyers(Barika, Mike Gordon Band), to enhance his mastery of the instrument. Mbanza has managed to combine stunning melodies with infectious grooves and beats, in order to create a catchy, yet direct and edgy sound.
